I think it's safe to say that a lot of people were initially disappointed when Apple announced the iPhone 4S instead of the much-awaited iPhone 5. After months of rumors and speculation, all Tim Cook did then was unveil a juiced-up iPhone with a faster chip that came with some personal assistant app called Siri.
Little did the early critics know that it didn't take more than just these two features to help push the 4S pre-orders to record highs within the first twenty-fours. A few weeks before the phone was shipped out, reviewers had already begun posting screenshots of Siri doing her thing, answering questions like 'What is love?' with 'Baby, don't hurt me.' and 'Where them hoes at?' with 'This strip club isn't far from you.' (and a map with directions on how to get there.)
